Dream of the Red Angel


The red angel with butterfly wings

Ascended from the table

Crimson like rubies.

Its citrine translucent wings

Shone with inspiration.

I am the red angel

From the days of red wedding gowns

In China.

My pear-shaped rhinestones

On my own red metal dress

Were also made in China

For American Christmas or

Everyday knick knack

Of candied apple color.

Higher and higher it flew

Beyond tree tops,

Past rain clouds

To the destiny

Of dolls.
